What would you like to do?
In Illinois is a person on Social Security responsible for child support payments?
Receipt of Social Security (versus SSI) does not relieve one of a support obligation. However, the child's allotment, if any, counts as support just as if you had paid it yourself. But a motion to modify needs to be filed. see links below
